    I know I'm going to take a beating for this, but I believe Bill Walton now is one of the better announcers the NBA/TV has to offer.

    Funny, but I thought the same thing when it showed up on my "show new replies ...

    Walton just tries to hard.

    To hard what? To hard ball? To hard ass? To hard line?

    Or did you perhaps mean tries too hard?

    An actual Walton quote during a game: "John Stockton ... not only a great story in the history of the NBA, but a great story in the history of Western civilization."

    You many mock that line, but I believe that's one of Walton's golden nuggets.

    That's OK. I'm sure Walton would mock your work if he ever read it.

    Instead of BW, try, "Bill Walton, NBA's best announcer?" next time.

    Then some of us won't have to bother clicking on it to see what the mystery thread is about.

    Walton is out there (way out there) at times. Times I scratch my head at things he says, but he's enjoyable for the most part.

    I think he's an inspirational story for kids who grow up stammering or stuttering. Walton worked pretty damn hard to overcome the affliction.

    Thank you so much for the information, JR. I'm obviously a little new around here and need a few pointers. It's not like I have 20,000 posts like you.
